Lyrics

[Verse 1]
I'm a little selfish with a lot to give
I'm a broken bone, I'm a losing bid
I know you want me in, in my place

[Verse 2]
I'm tremendous bliss, I'm an unknown voice
Make you feel less alone, but I'm not your toy
I know you want me out, out of your face

[Chorus]
I can smile for the camera
I can feed you my heart
I can lie lovin' at ya
I can act my part
And it's not the way I wanted it to be
But no one ever asked me
So I smile for the camera
And I act my part
Whoa

[Verse 3]
Under my skin written in my blood
There's a secret I keep, it's not your love
I know you don't know me at all
I'm a little bit bruised livin in the lies
But you hunger for more and I can paint my disguise
I'll be your fight, be your fall

[Chorus]
I can smile for the camera
I can feed you my heart
I can lie lovin' at ya
I can act my part
And it's not the way I wanted it to be
But no one ever asked me
So I smile for the camera
And I act my part
Whoa

[Bridge]
And you're everything I hide away
Buried deep, another face
All the secrets you will never know
Yeah

[Chorus]
I can smile for the camera
I can feed you my heart
I can lie lovin' at ya
I can act my part
And it's not the way I wanted it to be
But no one ever asked me
So I smile for the camera
And I act my part
Whoa
